About this tutor

https://gracejohntutoring.wixsite.com/math

Hi! My name is Grace. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in math.

I've taught seventh grade math, I've tutored mathematics, and for the past five years, I've been teaching English online.

Now, I'm excited to be tutoring online because I feel like it combines all of the things I've enjoyed doing through these past nine years.

So. If you are looking to improve your math skills, or even just pass your next exam, I hope you'll consider working with me as your next tutor!

Thank you!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

First, I want to get to know the student. I strive to build a relationship with the student day one. I also have student take a short placement assessment so that I can guage what it is that they need to work on. We then make a plan for how to catch up or get ahead.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education, and an emphasis in Mathematics. I also have just over nine years of experience with tutoring math (3), teaching in the classroom (1) and teaching online (5). 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

For now, I keep my lessons at under $40 an hour for the student if I can. This is something that I can negotiate with students on a case by case basis.


How did you get started teaching?

Hmmm... I'm not sure. I just always loved working with students and helping them to really learn new ideas. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have most frequently worked with students age 6 to 14. I have worked with very shy students as well as very high-energy students. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I finished a class with an online student the other day (with a different company). Before I could turn off my camera and microphone, her mom got my attention. She let me know that it would be our last class. I almost cried, but she thanked me and wanted to keep in touch afterward. I really love getting to build relationships with all of my students. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Find a teacher you feel good being around. Going to class or to a tutoring session should not feel like a jail sentence. It should feel like something to look forward to. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

You might ask yourself:

What am I good at? What are my strengths?
What about this subject do I enjoy?
What is challenging for me? Where do I get stuck in this subject?
What do I need in order to improve?
